Never Learning the Lesson

The Japanese government has decided to export nuclear plants to South Korea, Jordan, and Vietnam. How can Jordan which is located inside desert provide enough water to cool nuclear plants if the plants have similar nuclear accidents in Japan and Russia? By now, the government has worked out a revision of the law on the control of nuclear reactors. Unfortunately, the law has loophole, which allow the 40-year life span to expand to run 60 years (Japan Times, 19 January 2012). Neither the Japanese government nor pro-nuclear forces has learned any lesson from the March 11 disaster.
